Welcome to Vallis First School

Welcome to

Vallis First School

A safe and happy school where children can be the best they can be.

Please see the link below to read about our school.


Dear Parent/Carer

Regrettably, after the Prime Minister’s address to the nation tonight, we are going into another national lockdown.  This means our school will not be open to any pupils tomorrow, Tuesday 5th January.  We will be open from Wednesday for vulnerable children and the children of Keyworkers only until the Government decides otherwise.  We will contact you all again tomorrow when the Senior Leadership Team have discussed how this will look and the teachers have prepared further to deliver remote learning.

Best wishes


Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to the website for Vallis First School. I feel very privileged to be leading this amazing school in the beautiful market town of Frome. I started as Headteacher in September 2019 and I am very proud of the happy, safe and purposeful atmosphere in the school that is created by our dedicated and skilled staff team and the great learning attitudes of our children. The school feels like a large family and the strong nurturing and inclusive environment ensures that all our children achieve to the very best of their abilities.

There is a lot of information on our website, but if there are any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to telephone or come in as we will be very happy to help. If you are looking for a school for your child, I would be very pleased to show you around our school so you can see and experience for yourself the unique Vallis First School.

Nick Firkins (Headteacher)
